We stopped in here with our 3 year old grand daughter, on a bitterly cold Thursday last week. We all enjoyed a sumptuous lunch, beautifully prepared, tasty and filling. Although we were the only customers, we felt welcome and valued. Thank you for a really pleasant couple of hours!

It was an absolute pleasure - and your grandchildren were a delight - so pleased that you enjoyed and I hope it was more relaxing than your time at soft play!! I hope we may have the pleasure of welcoming you all back in the future. More

We booked a table and room to celebrate a special birthday. What a treat! The Old Passage is on the river at the end of a quiet lane in a beautiful situation. Our room looked out across the fields on one side and the river on the other and was well appointed, clean and comfortable. The bed was incredibly comfortable... More

Sadly, very disappointed. Being kind, the food for our Dinner was average, by no means cheap either 😨 there was no one else in the place and the service was desultory. We won't be going back

10 of us had booked for dinner to celebrate my "big birthday". Most of us, but not all, were great lovers of seafood but all 10 found something to suit their tastes. Those who were more adventurous were well pleased. Good quality wine to match and friendly staff made the evening a great success.

We had a superb meal last Saturday for our 30th wedding anniversary. Stayed the night and also had a delightful breakfast. We particularly enjoyed the poached oysters. I loved my lobster and my husbands venison was perfect.

Our fourth or five visit love this place wish it was nearer Malvern! Hence yes we drive 40 miles and hour to eat here. Wonderfull interesting menu never disappoints they will adapt items on it to suit I.e. Take of port belly from a scollop starter (I don't eat meat) some establishments will not alter the dishes. Fresh lobster in... More

I enjoyed all three courses, the Spanish fish stew was particularly good. The menu itself is quite fish orientated so you need to like seafood to get the best out of this restaurant. Service was good without any long pauses between courses or constant interference with your meal

Somewhat off the beaten track, this restaurant is a real find. It enjoys a prominent position overlooking the River Severn and has a delightful dining room. The menu is mostly fish and seafood and is presented well. The dishes are composed to a very high standard with great finesse. This is a very good restaurant indeed, take time out to... More

If you love seafood, you'll love this "restaurant with rooms". Although only a few minutes from the M5 Stroud exit, it's in a remote but spectacular location right by the river Severn. We stayed here for a special occasion - good seafood and fine wines don't come cheap - but we've already booked our next. Our room had great views... More

The Old Passage is an excellent choice for any special occasion meal. We've dined here a number of times and each time it has been a wonderful experience. The food is perfect, innovative and correctly priced for the quality & experience. It is a quieter restaurant due to the bespoke nature and small dining space; the staff respond brilliantly if...
